Dried flowers Christmas baubles

An unusual Christmas decoration with dried flowers
Last year I read this great article about making dried flowers baubles, and was inspired to try it for myself. I tried two different types of baubles – plastic ones that pull in half from the craft shop, and normal clear glass ones. I have loads of dried plant material from my garden, having spent all summer drying flowers and petals! I chose jewel colours such as red, golden yellow and blue for a Christmas feel.
Dried flowers from my garden including dried marigolds, roses, lavender, dahlias, pansies, hydrangeas and corn flowers.

These baubles are in two parts which snap together to hold the contents in place.

Glass dried flower baubles
These are trickier because there is only a small opening at the top for the dried flowers to fit through. Consequently I only used petals for this one.

Well that’s probably my last Christmas post, and possibly my last post of 2013, so
Best wishes for the festive season!
